|Can You See Him?|
|A Little Better Now?|
Now you can see him. This is a little Killdeer, one of the smallest of the plovers who live at the coast, although sometimes they do come inland and have been found here in Piedmont North Carolina.
He was actually right at the edge of the driveway at the beach cottage when I came back. I had to wait for about five minutes for him to move along so I didn't end up driving over him (horrors!).
It's been a long, long time since I've seen a Killdeer. Gulls, yes. Brown pelicans, yes. And more grackles than I care to count.
